30 Day Writing Challenge: Day 10 – Strongly

 

Write About Something You Feel Strongly About

Nature.

How many of you thought I was going to say writing? I have other interests you know… sure I feel strongly about the importance of writing, reading, and the English language but nature is also a big part of my life. Actually, nature is a big part of all our lives…

Without trees we wouldn’t have air. Without water we wouldn’t be able to live. Without dirt we wouldn’t be able to grow our food. Without insects we wouldn’t have most of our plants.

I love nature. Its beauty. Its complexity.

Most of my inspiration comes from talking walks in the woods. My childhood was spent swimming in the lakes and watching sunsets. I caught frogs, bats, and turtles. I went fishing with my father and tracking with my dog. I’ve explored caves big and small.

Nature is always there to support us and care for us. Yes, it can be dangerous but when it isn’t we take it for granted.

Sadly, there a children that don’t get to explore the forests like I did. There are children that never got to dig for worms, catch a large mouth bass, or rescue dragonflies from the lake. They are plugged in now and don’t get to appreciate a world outside a screen. That is a really sad thought. I couldn’t imagine where or what I would have become without having nature in my life.

I probably wouldn’t have been able to learn to disconnect from the busy world. I wouldn’t be a nature photographer (click here to see that blog) or an avid hiker. I would have never been to the Provincial Parks with my parents, or spent Sundays hiking the trails near my home. I wouldn’t be me without nature.

Heck, we wouldn’t be alive.

30 Day Writing Challenge: Day 9 – Wisdom

 

Post Some Words of Wisdom That Speak to You

There is a saying that has stuck with me for most of my life. Many a time I’ve thought about getting it permanently inked into my skin to show my love that are these words.

Yes, they are Shakespearian.

Yes, anyone – even your common house pet – can/ will be able to comprehend its amazingness.

“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves”

-William Shakespeare (Julius Caesar)

I will leave that percolate in your mind. Read it over, I’ll wait.

All right, enough waiting. Isn’t that the most amazing saying?

It pretty much is telling you that nothing controls your destiny but you. That nothing and no one can control your future but you.

*MIND BLOWN*

This saying has helped me in so many ways. It has inspired me. It has kept me going and pushing for what my purpose or dreams will be. It keeps me thinking about what my future will hold and where I will take myself.

I know I want to write. That is a given since I already spend a good amount of my time dedicated to this craft, but what else am I going to do. Publish another book? Yes. Travel the world? Maybe. Go back to school? Heck no! I’m free now… you couldn’t pay me to go back. I’m free I tell yeah, I’m free!!

Anywho… I just thought I’d share that with you and maybe if you want leave what those words of wisdom mean for/to you. 🙂
